Our team can very easily complete a survey on your property, when finding asbestos there are two survey’s that can be completed on a property and these are the management survey and the refurbishment & demolition survey. The management survey is a standard survey used to locate the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The reason why it is so important is that asbestos claims 4500 lives each year according to findings from the HSE. This is because asbestos causes four main diseases. These are Mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening.
In the UK between the 1950s and the mid-1980s asbestos was used in a variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. It is said that any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another. Our team are highly trained to remove and dispose of all materials containing asbestos. Our company holds a full and unconditional health and safety executive licence to work on or with asbestos and we also own and manage our own licensed transfer station permitted by the environment agency.
